In appreciation of our country’s Veterans, award-winning recording artists joined Musicians On Call (MOC), a nonprofit that brings live and recorded music to the bedsides of patients, families and caregivers in healthcare environments, and Wrangler® for Concert For Veterans Presented by Wrangler in honor of Veterans Day. This annual initiative offers hope and happiness to hospitalized Veterans nationwide through the healing power of music.
For the month of November, patients and caregivers in Veterans Affairs (VA) facilities across the country will enjoy a virtual concert featuring performances and words of gratitude from Darius Rucker, Craig Morgan, Brothers Osborne, The War And Treaty, Brittney Spencer, Riley Green, Charles Esten and the cast of NASHVILLE, Margo Price, Tigirlily Gold, Scotty McCreery, Russell Dickerson, Chapel Hart, Lady A, Singa B, Stephanie Quayle, Larysa Jaye, Curt Chambers, Charlie Worsham, Laura Bryna and more. This show is especially meaningful for Morgan and Michael Trotter Jr. of The War And Treaty who are Veterans themselves. Hosted by Kelly Sutton and Amber Anderson of Amazon Country Heat Weekly, the concert will be shared exclusively through Musicians On Call’s virtual program and through a partnership with the American Hospital Association.

Veterans at the Nashville VA Medical Center also enjoyed a live concert experience featuring HunterGirl, Caleb Lee Hutchinson and Alex Hall. In collaboration with the Grand Ole Opry, these artists performed heartfelt songs and shared touching stories behind a replica of the famed Opry mic. HunterGirl also spent time visiting patients at their bedsides prior to the show. Music fans everywhere can join in the campaign by streaming the MOC Stars and Stripes playlist curated by Hall. The playlist is available thanks to Amazon Music, the Official Playlist Sponsor, and can be enjoyed on the Amazon Music app.
